Nate Madden – April 28, 2017
Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, around 58 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion in America. Of that statistic, Planned Parenthood is responsible for over 300,000 per year. Statistics like these are so familiar to pro-life activists and politicians that they can sometimes lose its meaning and power.
But what if politicians – if all of us – were confronted with the harsh reality of those statistics? What if the same politicians who once again are poised to continue PP’s tax dollar stream had to look directly at the concrete results of what continuing the group’s federal funding means for America’s pre-born population?
On Wednesday, in front of the Capitol building, a group of dedicated pro-lifers made that happen.
Students for Life of America, a college pro-life organization, delivered almost 200,000 baby socks to Congress. Their message? That Planned Parenthood alone is responsible for the death of the children who should be filling those socks.
